What It Does
- Lets you easily set and change launch options and fire the game up
- Enable/disable expansions to more easily play with your friends
- More in-depth features are being worked on (saves/stash/mods management and other related tasks)
How To Use
- It’s a self-contained .exe file, no installation needed
- Download and place it wherever you like (I prefer pinning it to the Windows taskbar personally)
- Fire it up and press some buttons. If you have custom installation paths, set your paths
Concerning Your Antivirus Programs
Note - do keep in mind that if your Antivirus program freaks out and blocks it, this is a false-positive and it is up to you to make the judgement call to allow it or not. If you do, please register it with your Anti-virus provider as a false-positive so they can do what is necessary to pass it as “clean” in the future.
Please do not bother reporting such occurrences to me here since there is nothing much I can do for it directly and I am in no way responsible for the heuristics detection of your antivirus program making bad calls.
This is an issue that even a relatively known company like Crate has to deal with as well. Grim Dawn still consistently gets harassed by AV flags during updates to this day.
Many users of AV software barely know how to use the software they’ve installed or had pre-installed upon their system. If you don’t understand what you’re doing then know that Google exists (and other search engines like it). Use it, educate yourself. The collective knowledge of the world is at your fingertips, please don’t waste it.
More Random Info
Right-click on the “Steam” or “GOG” buttons to access the “Set Paths” screen for each of the game clients, the options on each of these pages will be greyed out/disabled if Switcher already detects the default paths or otherwise has already attained this information
Switcher creates a folder for itself here:
C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME HERE\Documents\My Games\gd-switcher
It uses this folder to create token .txt files here that it uses as its “memory” so that it remembers the various settings you choose from session to session
This is also where it stores the shortcut files it uses to launch the game
Delete the above mentioned folder and the ‘GD Switcher.exe’ to uninstall the program if you need to. Deleting just the folder is also an easy way to “reset” Switcher
Special thanks to @JMD for making Switcher’s icons and for testing the “other” version I was working on. Don’t worry, I’ll get the Python version up to that point
